We hadn’t had brunch in a while, and Sunday brunch was calling our names. Well, morning mimosas and caesars, to be specific. And Tuc just happened to have both. How… fortuitous.
Kebin was back in town for a few precious weeks, so we had to stuff in a few foodie dates. Kebin is also a big meat-eater, so we had to be a bit… sneaky about taking him here. To Virtuous Pie. A vegan pizza place. Heh… heh… heh…
This is a historic (well, historic in FU-land) post. For the first time ever, Grace picked a vegetarian place for us to try. Without any convincing, cajoling, or nudging. G: Did I just suggest The Arbor M: … Wow you actually did. G: You have taught me well.
Things to do before you die: drive the Oregon/California coastline. It’s breathtaking, trust us. We woke up early to start the day’s drive—and let’s just say the complimentary breakfast at our motel wasn’t cutting it. We drove through cloudy San Simeon and noticed that The Ragged Point Inn has a restaurant. Hans: Breakfast anyone? Everyone: YES. And … Continue reading Ragged Point Cafe – San Simeon
Sometimes, you come across some mythical names that you feel compelled to file away for… someday. Names of faraway cities to visit, rockstars to stalk… but for us, these seemed to often be the names of restaurants. Pok Pok was one such restaurant. There were five of us, so we could taste a pretty wide range … Continue reading Pok Pok – Portland
It was a cold, rainy Friday night. In Vancouver, this basically means good effing luck finding a decent restaurant for dinner without having to wait an hour. And if you’re looking for better-than-decent, you’ll probably want to make that a two-hour wait. Which is why we were absolutely floored when we discovered that Fable Diner had room for … Continue reading Fable Diner
After viewing this year’s winners in the Best of the Georgia Staight, Mell was surprised she’d never heard of Nightingale on the foodie wires. So curious, in fact, that she messaged Grace right away. “You down if I book us for some resos at this restaurant?” “Uh, YES. Is that even a question?”
If there’s one thing that we could not get enough of on this road trip (other than drinking), it was poké. That fresh, light meal that leaves you feeling satisfied—without the food coma hangover—was something that we craved almost every day in the hot Cali weather. So of course we had to try another poké … Continue reading The Poké Shack – Los Angeles
Climbing a mountain is great for hangovers. A large group of us decided to do just that early Sunday morning. On an overcast and crisp day, summiting the bleak rock felt THAT much cooler. Needing to replenish what we’d burned off, we decided to hit up Pho Tan on Main St. We ordered tea straight away … Continue reading Pho Tan
Because we’d been missing not only Spanish but also Italian food, we felt it was time to relive our days in Florence and Rome today. We discovered that the Sardine Can is part of a Spanish-Italian group of restaurants in Vancouver—La Buca and Sorella are the other two restaurants in this group. Grace had a gift … Continue reading La Buca
